Note:

The following cPanel & WHM versions support the Sitejet Builder plugin:

  • cPanel & WHM version 110
  • cPanel & WHM version 116 and later

Overview

The Sitejet Builder interface allows you to view and manage your Sitejet domains. The Sitejet Builder interface is fully integrated with the Sitejet Website Builder (Content Management System) website. You can use the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) to create and design a website for your domain. Then, you can publish it with your cPanel account.

Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) allows you to personalize the appearance of your website with a drag-drop editor or start from scratch and build your website from the ground up. Every template is fully customizable.

Create a new domain

To create a domain, click Create A New Domain. The system will redirect you to the Domains interface (cPanel » Home » Domains » Domains). To build a Sitejet website for your new domain, return to the Sitejet Builder interface (cPanel » Home » Domains » Sitejet Builder).

Domains table

The Sitejet Builder interface lists all the domains associated with your account. For each domain, you can take actions to manage your website, preview your website, choose a new template for your website, or build a new website using the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS).

Website Name

The column under Website Name lists all domains associated with your account. Click Website Name to sort the list alphabetically by account name.

Actions

Each domain the column lists has one or more actions available for you to manage the website for the domain. The actions will be different depending on if you made the website with Sitejet.

Options Description
Click Details to preview your website. On the Website Details page, you can perform the following actions:
  • Click Restore to recover your non-Sitejet website.
    Note:

    This option only appears if the following two statements are true:

    • You had a previously existing website for this domain.
    • You created a restore point before publishing your Sitejet website.

  • Click Edit Site to change the look of your website.
  • Click Change Template to select a new template.
Click Change Template to select a new template for your website. The Choose Template interface will appear.
Click Edit Site to edit an existing Sitejet website. The system will redirect you to the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) website.
Click Continue Editing to edit a Sitejet website you started but have not yet published. The system will redirect you to the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) website.
Click Try Sitejet to create a new Sitejet website. The Choose Template interface will appear.

Try Sitejet

To create a website for your domain, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Try Sitejet for the domain. The Choose Template interface will appear.
  2. Once you have chosen a template and personalized your website in the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS), click Publish (). The system will redirect you to the Sitejet Builder interface and will publish your design to the domain’s document root directory.
    • If your domain’s document root already contains files, the system will prompt you to Create a restore point. A restore point saves your website’s information so that you can recover it in the future. If you choose not to create a restore point, you will not be able to recover your non-Sitejet website.
    • If the publication process will cause your cPanel account to exceed its disk quota, the system will prompt you to free up additional space before you can publish your Sitejet website.

The Choose Template interface

The Choose Template interface allows you to select a template for your website.

Select a template

You can filter template options by selecting a category from the list. For instance, to create a new cooking website, click Gastronomy for food-inspired templates.

Once you have selected a filter, the preview thumbnails will update.

To choose or view a template, mouse over the preview and select one of the following options:

  • Choose — Click to select the template.
  • View — Click to see a preview of the template in desktop, tablet, or mobile formats.

Once you have selected a template, the system will redirect you to the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) website. For more information on how to use the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS), read Sitejet’s Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) documentation.

Why can’t I build a Sitejet website?

You may see a domain listed in the Sitejet Builder interface that does not allow the creation of a website with Sitejet. The following issues may be impacting your ability to create a website with Sitejet:

Shared document root

You cannot use a shared document root directory with Sitejet. To resolve this issue, do one of the following:

  1. Use the Main domain.
  2. Create a new domain.
  3. Delete the second dependent domain.

You can now create a Sitejet website for that domain.

For more information on domains, read our Domains interface (cPanel » Home » Domains » Domains) documentation.

Redirected website

A redirect allows you to make one domain redirect to another domain, either for a website or a specific web page. For example, your can create a redirect so that www.example.com automatically redirects users to www.example.net. You cannot use a redirected website with Sitejet.

To resolve this issue, perform the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the Redirects interface (cPanel » Home » Domains » Redirects).
  2. Navigate to Current Redirects. Locate the desired redirected domain and click Delete. A confirmation box will appear.
  3. Click Remove Redirect. A success message will appear.

You can now create a Sitejet website for that domain.

Move a Sitejet website

You can move a website you created with Sitejet to another domain. To move the files from a Sitejet website domain’s document root to another domain’s document root, you must first copy your Sitejet-provided sharing code.

Copy your Sitejet-provided sharing code

Important:

The Sitejet-provided sharing code is a unique 15-digit key you can obtain in the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS). It resembles the following: 263e457a-407129.

To get your Sitejet-provided code, perform the following steps:

  1. In cPanel’s Sitejet Builder interface (cPanel » Home » Domains » Sitejet Builder), locate the domain you would like to move and click Edit Site. The system will redirect you to the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) website.
  2. In the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS), click the hamburger menu () on the left side of the top navigation bar. A menu will appear.
  3. Click Share & Copy Website. The Share & Copy Website interface will appear.
  4. In the Code for Sharing section, click the Copy button to copy the Sitejet-provided code.
  5. Click Exit to return to cPanel’s Sitejet Builder interface.

Once you have your Sitejet-provided code, you must share it with your new Sitejet domain.

Add your Sitejet-provided sharing code

To share your files to your new domain’s document root, perform the following steps:

  1. In cPanel’s Sitejet Builder interface (cPanel » Home » Domains » Sitejet Builder), locate the domain to which you would like to move your files. Click one of the following options: Edit Site, Continue Editing, or Try Sitejet.

    Note:
    • Your options will vary depending on the target domain.
    • If your target domain is not currently a Sitejet website, you must select any template as a placeholder before the system will redirect to the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS).

    The system will redirect you to the Sitejet Website Builder (CMS) website.
